Myriad Luxury Motorcoach Resort

To Mountain Falls Luxury Motorcoach Resort, I am a Very Important Person. They sent me an email today asking if I would be a Very Interested Person.

Would I be interested in their new development: Myriad Luxury Motorcoach Resort?

Of course I am interested. Mountain Falls is a beautiful RV Resort although a bit too isolated and definitely in the wrong location for Canadian Snowbirds. Myriad is located near Fort Myers. Much better location for Canadian Snowbirds.

From their website:

Designed in the French West Indies Vernacular, Myriad is truly a one of a kind Motorcoach Resort unparalleled in its fine finish, attention to detail and warm luxurious design.

We spent the last 5 years planning this resort, leveraging our experience in developing the finest in luxury resort communities and understanding the wants and needs of the motorcoach enthusiast. With oversized lots, lush landscaping, and deluxe coach villas for entertaining and overnight guests, to the meticulously designed infrastructure, we’ve anticipated your future wants and needs. We took the time to get it right.

The park will have a total of 344 lots. In an interesting twist, the lots for sale will be significantly larger than the lots for rent. And the rental lots will be segregated from the purchased lots. Seems a bit unusual to me and it could create a barrier between renters and owners. Especially if the developer does something like place restrictions on clubhouse access.

The rental sites, all 171 of them, are tucked away in the top right of the sitemap. See all of those tiny lots crammed together? They are 38 feet wide. We are currently on a lot that is 45 feet wide. Not sure that we would enjoy a long-term stay on that narrow a site.

If you are willing to spend a quarter million to buy a lot on the big lake, you will get a lot that measures about 57 feet wide by 100 feet deep. There are 173 of those lots for sale. Building out a coach house on the lakefront sites will probably cost another few hundred thousand. Throw in the requisite Prevost conversion, and you can enjoy this bit of paradise for only a mere million or two.

The lots for sale that are not on the lake are discounted. You only have to pay about $165,000 for the cheap seats.

I expect to see more and more of these luxury motorcoach resorts being built. After all, with so many higher end coaches being produced these days, the inventory of sites for sale and rent does need to increase. It can be difficult securing a decent site at a Class A Motorcoach Resort in Florida during the peak season.

We booked our sites well in advance of our stay this winter.

We will be lining up to secure a site at our current park for next year. And when I say lining up, I do mean lining up.

More on that experience in a few weeks.
